A woman examines her thigh with both hands, looking thoughtfully at her cellulite

Cellulite is a common concern for many people, affecting up to 90% of women at some point in their lives. Despite its prevalence, many myths and misconceptions abound about how to treat it. FDA-cleared Aveli demystifies cellulite treatment with powerful, evidence-based results. Here’s what you should know about using Aveli for cellulite reduction.

What Is Aveli?

Aveli is a minimally invasive treatment designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. Unlike traditional methods that focus on the surface, Aveli targets the structural causes of cellulite by releasing the fibrous septae under the skin that create these dimples.

(Please note that Aveli does not target skin laxity or excess fat, so if you are looking to contour and smooth your skin, we recommend pairing Aveli with CoolSculpting® Elite for best results.)

Myths About Cellulite Treatments

Aveli’s unique “inside out” approach provides longer-lasting results by addressing the root cause rather than just the symptoms. To understand what sets Aveli apart, let’s look at some common misconceptions about cellulite reduction treatments.

Myth: Cellulite Treatments Are Painful and Require Long Recovery Times

One of the biggest myths is that effective cellulite treatments are painful and come with extended downtime. Aveli treatments are minimally invasive and are typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

Most patients can resume their normal activities the same day or shortly after the procedure, with minimal discomfort and a swift recovery period.

Myth: Cellulite Treatments Don’t Work

Many people believe that cellulite treatments are ineffective, largely due to the abundance of over-the-counter creams and topical treatments that promise results but rarely deliver. Aveli, however, is different.

Clinical research has shown that Aveli can significantly improve the appearance of cellulite by directly addressing the fibrous bands that cause dimpling. Patients often see noticeable improvements after just one treatment, with results that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Myth: Only Women Get Cellulite

While cellulite is predominantly found in women due to the structure of their connective tissue, men can also develop cellulite. Aveli treatments are suitable for both men and women, offering a solution to anyone looking to smooth dimples on the buttocks and thighs.

Aveli Cellulite Treatment FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions we get about Aveli below.

How Long Does an Aveli Treatment Take?

An Aveli treatment typically takes about an hour to complete, depending on the number of areas being treated. The process is straightforward, starting with local anesthesia to numb the area before a specialized device is inserted via a small incision.

Your practitioner uses a small light at the end of the device to locate the septa pulling the skin down and creating a dimple. They will confirm in real time that the fibrous bands have been released before moving on to the next area.

Are There Any Side Effects?

As with any procedure, there can be side effects, but they are generally mild and temporary. Common side effects include slight bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area. These effects usually resolve within a few days to a week. Serious complications are rare, making Aveli a safe and effective option for most patients.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Patients often notice an improvement in their skin’s appearance immediately after treatment, though the results will continue to develop over several weeks. The longevity of the results makes Aveli an attractive option, especially as patients typically only need a single treatment session.
